Scattered like strings of pearls across the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean, the coral atolls that make up the tiny nation of The Maldives attract travellers seeking the sun, sea and sand with some of the most beautiful islands in the world.
An exhilarating 55-minute seaplane ride from the Maldivian capital of Male brings guests to the luxury all-villa Fairmont Maldives set on the idyllic island of Sirru Fen Fushi, within the Shaviyani Atoll. Taking its name from the local expression for “secret water island”, Sirru Fen Fushi glistens like a pearl, its powder white sand beach fringed with swaying palms is kissed by the turquoise waters of the 600-hectare lagoon that gives way to the tranquil blues of the Indian Ocean and a never-ending horizon.
The 120 luxury villas are a seamless blend of art and nature with natural materials, indigenous decorations and native patterns creating a harmonious yet stimulating eclectic charm. Choose from hideaway Beach Villas set in the mangroves, stunning Water Villas perched over the Indian Ocean, or castaway Tented Jungle Villas. Ranging in size from one to three bedrooms, each villa is designed for exceptional comfort and relaxation with private pools, modern amenities, and more.
A seaplane will be used to take guests from Male Airport to the resort, with different prices for children and adults. Guests can also visit the underwater museum set up by the Fairmont group and environmental activist Jason deCaires Taylor, the "Coralarium" which was installed to promote growth of coral and sealife.
